Ok, here is the deal, every Friday I will post a new Blog in which we will choose the greatest player ever at a certain position. Untill the next position is posted CBS members may vote for who they think the greatest ever is, at the end of the voting I will calculate everyones votes and will add that player to The Greatest Team Ever. I hope lots of you participate because I think this could be fun. I will try to post a running tally in a comment every day.

1st Possition - C      Vote for the best center of all time!! Please post your vote in a comment, if you wish to give some insight on your choice feel free to do so. Please start your post with the players name, and please make sure that you are naming someone who played the position being voted for that week, as those are the only votes that will count..........So who is our Center?

As I said before, Dermonti Dawson was the best center I ever saw play the game. I loved Mike Webster, but I would rank him behind Dawson and Dwight Stephenson of the Dolphins. But since Webster seems to be getting the majority of the Steeler nation votes, give him one for me. Mike Webster.

Mike Webster best Center Ever

Mike Webster is the player all other centers are measured against. 4 rings, HOF, he played until he could no longer play, and then some.

Tom Nalen.  He is by far the best center I've ever seen.  Not that I've seen that many, but  he still gets my vote.

Just want to throw this name out there.  One of the best ever at TWO POSITIONS!  The last of the 60 minute men...Chuck Bednarik.  Played Center and Middle LineBacker for the Eagles.  One of the most feared players of all time, and one of the hardest hitters of all time.  No one will ever play the game like "Concrete Charlie" again.

Sure Webster was great, he got drafted as the Steelers started their run of getting the ring Four times.  He was also a seventime All-Pro  and played in 245 games.  But their is another center that grabs my attention on this topic.  Jim Otto.  He played in over 300 games, was a 12 time All-AFL (12 straight years), Named to the all-time AFL team.

So I would vote like this:

1a.  Jim Otto

1b.  Mike Webster

Two great centers, two different eras, maybe too close to call.
